Swift Current Thriftlodge
Ranked #10 of 15 Hotels in Swift Current
Reviewed 28 March 2008

My husband and I moved across Canada in our car. We also had our 2 cats with us, so we needed to find motels which allowed pets. The Super 8 was booked, so we decided on the Travelodge, which has changed it's name to Thriftlodge.
It's a motel with the doors on the outside, very run down, and tons of panelling in the office and the room. Not too bad though, no bugs, small shower, NO hair dryer! But, there was a microwave and fridge.
We had to stay in a smoking room, because of the cats, and it was stinky!
I guess if you just had to sleep there, oh, and the "heated indoor pool and hottub" is across the street! Ha!

Reviewed 22 October 2007

We travelled across Saskatchewan and greatly enjoyed the sights in nature and the friendly people in towns. We reserved a room at the Swift Current ThriftLodge for the evening of October 16th. Here's my review of our stay there:

'Catch and Release' was how we approached the first 16 red-and-black winged bugs in our room, seemingly brought out by the strong afternoon sun. We shooed them out the door. But as the evening wore on, we simply killed them. When we left the next morning, our body count was 32 and our disgust total. If you ever get the chance to stay here, don't!

The rest of Saskatchewan? Brilliant! That particular motel? Execrable!
